Mizoram Chief Minister Zoramthanga has lived up to his poll promise.
The Mizoram Cabinet chaired by Chief Minister Zoramthanga has cleared the proposed liquor prohibition bill in the state.
The Mizoram Liquor Prohibition Bill, 2019 will now be introduced in the state Assembly during the Budget session starting from March 20.
